DEBONAIR! Certainly he seemed like the perfect little gentleman during the time he sat in front of a camera while a “man in miniature” sixth plate with an archival seal was recorded on silver. There is barely even a whisper of tarnish inside the oval brass mat. At first, until I removed the lad from his complete leather case, I thought that the surface might have been previously cleaned. I was incorrect! Original tight paper seals and a snug fit inside the box had kept the surface nearly pristine. Only the gold painted on the kid’s ring had bled a bit. I am thunderstruck by the condition and the perfection of the tiny person. His pose was wonderful and the space around him contributes to my enjoyment.
